Wow Myrl,

How fun is that.  I like that there is an education day, so one can learn the history of Old Sacramento.  Have a great weekend.  A

Jeff Dowler - I've had a busy schedule that will continue on until near the end of September, but I do hope to get a day to take in this event.  I try to go each year.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - Education Day is a big draw for schools in the area to bus kids into the area. The whole event is pretty educational, as well as fun. 

Sharon Lee - I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the idea that this much of the year is passed as well. 

Patricia Feager - I try to attend this event at least one day each year.  The crowd size always seems to be comfortable, and add to the ambiance.

Good morning, Myrl... I had no idea about this festival. It sounds wonderful. If I were still living in San Francisco, I'd sure make a point to come and enjoy.

I love this type of scene and Tombstone is one of my favorite movies ever.  I believe that to this day, you can still see a scene like this daily in Tombstone.  Even though I don't live too far from there, I have yet to visit.

This is one Labor Day I won't spend in Sacramento, Myrl. I've labored so much I'm going to Hawaii. I'm sure you'll grab some great photos, though. Looking forward to living vicariously through you in Old Sac.

Ah the old west and the Gold Rush Days.  This should be a lot of fun. The gold rush was a big part of our western history and should be celebrated!

You present a very interesting event, Myrl Jeffcoat. It sounds like so much fun, also.  I know if I lived in the area, I would definitely be attending one or more of the days.
